I had the pleasure to attend a 5-day retreat taught by Clarissa in Australia in 2019. The experience was phenomenal and literally could not have been better. She was generous in sharing her knowledge and supplies, perfect in balancing direct instruction with time to "get into the zone", and thoroughly supportive and encouraging throughout. She had the talent to be able to take us all through step-by-step instructions but to teach in such a way that every attendee's project reflected their own artistic voice rather than being a copy of the instructor's. Her good humor and total ease in her role as an instructor was icing on the art cake. I would take another class with her in a heartbeat."       Seth Apter 

"I love taking classes from Clarissa! She is knowledgeable and presents the material in a way that is easy to understand, she knows her subject matter and can explain it to be accessible to all skill levels. She is very generous with materials and information.

When you leave the class, you always feel like you can go home and repeat it and make the process a part of your own art."       Ann Webb
